Kiora Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (“Kiora” or the “Company”) was formed as a Delaware corporation December 28, 2004 as amended. Kiora is a clinical-stage specialty pharmaceutical company developing and commercializing therapies for the treatment of ophthalmic diseases.

Since its inception, Kiora has devoted substantially all of its efforts to business planning, research and development, and raising capital.

Going Concern

The accompanying Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements have been prepared assuming that Kiora will continue as a going concern, which contemplates the realization of assets and satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. At March 31, 2022, Kiora had unrestricted Cash and Cash Equivalents of $5.067 million, and an Accumulated Deficit of $124.444 million. Kiora has incurred losses and negative cash flows since inception, and future losses are anticipated. Based on its cash on hand at March 31, 2022, the Company anticipates having sufficient cash to fund planned operations through July 2022, however, the acceleration or reduction of cash outflows by Company management can significantly impact the timing for the need to raise additional capital to complete development of its products. To continue development, Kiora will need to raise additional capital through equity financing, license agreements, and/or additional U.S. government grants. Although historically the Company has been successful at raising capital, most recently raising net proceeds of approximately $9.756 million in a registered direct offering that closed on August 11, 2021, additional capital may not be available on terms favorable to Kiora, if at all. The Company does not know if any future offerings will succeed. Accordingly, no assurances can be given that Company management will succeed in these endeavors. The Company’s recurring losses from operations have caused management to determine there is substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements do not include any adjustments to reflect the possible future effects on the recoverability and classification of assets or the amounts and classification of liabilities or any other adjustments that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

Unaudited Interim Financial Information

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“U.S. GAAP”) for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Rule 10-01 of Regulation S-X. Pursuant to these rules and regulations, they do not include all information and notes required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) considered necessary for a fair presentation of the Company’s financial condition and results of operations have been included. Operating results for the periods presented are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the full year. We believe that the disclosures provided herein are adequate to make the information presented not misleading when these unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements are read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and notes previously distributed in the Company’s 2021 Annual Report on Form 10-K/A dated July 6, 2022. The balance sheet as of December 31, 2021 was derived from audited consolidated financial statements of the Company but does not include all the disclosures required by U.S. GAAP.
